"Put loss and love together in one beautiful melody, never give it radio play or live recordings, then you'll have a song that can never get old. Walk On, Love is Blindness, Kite, A Sort of Homecoming, and Every Breaking Wave too. "
I first heard about U2 when I saw the band name spray painted on the side of my Jr. High School gym. Even though I'd never heard a song, they became my favorite band from that day forward.
I began a blog about the spiritual side of U2: isbonoachristian.blogspot.com but I let it die. I now blog at http://freddymartin.net/ where I write more about the spiritual side of U2... and other stuff.
"Bono volunteered me to be photographed naked, as I recall. I was still a young man and the idea of doing a nude photo shoot appealed to me because I'd been looking at Robert Mapplethorpe's work and following that whole New York photographic art scene. I knew there might be repercussions but this was a one-shot opportunity for me. This was the right record for such an expression."
